CALAUAN, Laguna: A police buy-bust operation conducted on Friday dawn in Makati Ville, Barangay Dayap in this town turned bloody when two suspected drug pushers fired at Calauan operatives. In his report to the Laguna Police Provincial Director Sr. Supt. Joel Pernito on Saturday, the Calauan chief of police, Chief Inspector Luis Perez, identified the slain suspects as Palermo Palon alias “Gata” and Ronald Crisolo alias “Onak,” all residents of Dayap village here. Perez led his team of anti-illegal drug operatives to conduct the buy-bust operation an hour past midnight on Friday in the partly-lit area near the resettlement site. The undercover operation was about to proceed with the entrapment when the suspects drew their firearms and open-fired at the approaching policemen. One suspect was hit first and slumped to the roadside while the other suspect still holding his gun fell on the tricycle’s backseat. The suspected drug pushers died on the spot.
